Tasting Notes

Stéphane Tissot has succeeded in finding the balance in his grapes that enables him to make this wine without dosage, his ideal of how Crémant should be produced. Beyond the wine’s familiarly uncanny resemblance to champagne, it has a depth and persistence of flavor that pay tribute to the bio-dynamic regime of the domaine. The wine has never been better, and the news is out, so grab your bottle today before it's gone!

About the Winery

Stephane Tissot took over the reins of Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot in 1990. Bursting with ideas, he began converting the estate's 40 hectares (99 acres) of vineyards in 1999, and today the entire property is worked according to biodynamics. The estate is an exemplar, especially for the appellations of Arbois, Arbois Vin Jaune, Cotes du Jura, and Chateau-Chalon. In the early 1990s, after trips to Australia and South Africa, Stephane Tissot undertook enormous efforts in the cellar to hone the fruit, substance, and complexity of his wines. He breathed life into the estate, providing the energy necessary to produce a complete, consistent range of precise, delicate wines with great fruit character.
